britt burton, and you're watching "beta records tv," and today we're here at the gibson showroom with billy morrison, one of the most fabulous rock guitarists, and he's gonna be giving us an inside scoop on gibson guitars. thank you so much for letting us just come by and check all this out. >> my absolute pleasure. >> brittany: obviously, we have a lot of guitars behind us right now, but something cool that gibson came out with was a self-tuning guitar. how is that different from playing one that you have to tune? >> many, many songs are written and recorded in different tunings. once you start doing gigs and stuff, you find yourself doing 12 songs, and there's 6 different tunings. now, you got to own six different guitars, or you're gonna be out of tune because you can't really keep retuning one guitar because they're not set up to do that. that thing there, the dark fire, blew my mind. now, it's pretty technical, and it's been a while since i played it, but, basically... [ chords play ] and then if you select another tuning... yeah, now you've got instant rolling stones. [ roc

that because i was still performing, and little did i know at the time i was really working in a show that i do now by doing clowning work and singing telegrams and the theater work. like, all of that came together in the past four or five years, and i realized that it was all important and i can use all of that. >> did this all start when you were on the east coast in new york city as far as the street performing and stuff? >> yeah, street performing started in new york. i would juggle. like, companies would hire me to juggle out in front. like, in the middle of winter, i was dressed like a -- you know, all the way, juggling. i don't even know who -- i was juggling for myself. i become a better juggler. i don't think i helped the companies much, but, uh... i was a bucket player. i played, like, the buckets, you know, and did stuff like that, and i'm always able to just kind of go back to juggling. >> it sounds like you're very involved with, you know, helping kids, educating kids. was that an experience that you had as a kid? were you around somebody that was sort of a mentor fo

back at the political hits of the last year and what a rich political year it's been of the let's start with the biggest game changers in politics this year. the biggest game change of the political year the surprising supreme court ruling in june that upheld obama care? or was it the big impact our country's minorities had this year to re-elect the president? was it the big fat super pac money that swamped presidential politics this year or the tea party's influence over the republicans rose up over two years ago but continued to dominate the g.o.p. this year. >> i think it's money but not big money, little money. obama raised $1 billion this year, half of it in donations from small people, small amounts, and half in the last three months so astonishing swell of cash at a time when people thought he would be outspent. chris: over and over again, an email asking for $5. >> i'm going with the tea party because it had such an impact on the republican primary process and what the republican party needs to fix now because if they go through that again in 2016, they're in trouble again
